George S. Patton quotes

No bastard ever won a war by dying for his country. He won it by making the other poor dumb bastard die for his country.

You need to overcome the tug of people against you as you reach for high goals.

I don't measure a man's success by how high he climbs but how high he bounces when he hits bottom.

It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived.

If everyone is thinking alike, then somebody isn't thinking.

The object of war is not to die for your country but to make the other bastard die for his.

A good plan violently executed now is better than a perfect plan executed next week.

Better to fight for something than live for nothing.

Battle is the most magnificent competition in which a human being can indulge. It brings out all that is best; it removes all that is base. All men are afraid in battle. The coward is the one who lets his fear overcome his sense of duty. Duty is the essence of manhood.

If you tell people where to go, but not how to get there, you'll be amazed at the results.

Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity.

We herd sheep, we drive cattle, we lead people. Lead me, follow me, or get out of my way.

The test of success is not what you do when you are on top. Success is how high you bounce when you hit bottom.

Accept the challenges so that you can feel the exhilaration of victory.

Courage is fear holding on a minute longer.

Wars may be fought with weapons, but they are won by men. It is the spirit of men who follow and of the man who leads that gains the victory.

Don't tell people how to do things, tell them what to do and let them surprise you with their results.

Success is how high you bounce when you hit bottom.

The time to take counsel of your fears is before you make an important battle decision. That's the time to listen to every fear you can imagine! When you have collected all the facts and fears and made your decision, turn off all your fears and go ahead!

Prepare for the unknown by studying how others in the past have coped with the unforeseeable and the unpredictable.
